DEDON // cool Outside Furniture

DEDON brings the epitome of “cool” to outside furniture.

“At DEDON, outdoor living is our reason for being. So it should come as little surprise how seriously we take our commitment to the environment…

Developed 20 years ago this year, the original DEDON Fiber is a model of environmental friendliness. It’s sustainably produced, 100 percent recyclable and completely non-toxic (it can be used in children’s toys or to wrap food). It doesn’t pollute groundwater or harm the ozone layer. And remarkably, it’s not finished – the research lab at our fiber production facility in Lüneburg is continually seeking ways to make it even more environmentally sound. Each time they succeed, we raise the environmental standard for our entire industry just that much higher.

And the same is true at our manufacturing facilities on Cebu island in the Philippines. Here too, we control the entire manufacturing process. And here too, we systematically approach each phase of production with the aim of continually improving  environmental performance. Among our most notable achievements so far is the zero waste we generate across the entire DEDON supply chain. “Every scrap of waste created during production is recycled,” explains Hervé Lampert, a passionate advocate of the environment. “Every leftover strip of fiber, every off-cut of aluminum is segregated, sold off or otherwise reintroduced to the system. Even the aluminum shavings from the cutting blade are recycled.”
